  2. 2. This report is confidential and is intended for the sole use of the person who completedthe questionnaire.It has been given to you to provide some feedback about the analysis of your responsesto the questionnaire which you recently completed.The self-report personality questionnaire invited you to describe your behaviour,preferences and attitudes in relation to different aspects of your working life. It waschosen to give a broad picture of your current style. Your responses have beencompared with a large group of people who have filled in the same questionnaire.When considering this report’s description of your personality, it is important torecognise that it is based on the answers you gave and is your own view, representingthe way you see your behaviour, rather than how your personality might be described byanother person. This self-report can nevertheless give important clues to understandingthe way you see your style at work and it is likely to enable us to predict a good dealabout your behaviour in different situations. This report links the information under threebroad headings and summarises all of your responses to the questionnaire.The specific application of the information will influence which sections of the report aremost relevant. You may have already received personal feedback of these results, or hadthis offered to you. Whoever gave you feedback and/or this report should be qualified toanswer your queries about any aspect of the report and provide a more detailed analysisof what the results mean for you.The contents of this report are likely to be a good description of your behaviour at workfor about 18 to 24 months, depending upon your work role and personal circumstances.If it is to be used in the future, consideration should be given to its continued relevance.RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEOPLEInfluenceYou describe yourself as someone who very strongly dislikes getting involved inpersuading or negotiating, and would much prefer not to sell ideas to other people.However, you have a slight inclination to take charge of others rather than leave takingthe lead to others. When it comes to expressing your views, you have a slight tendencyto say what you think rather than holding back your opinions, while still being preparedto criticise people when you feel it is appropriate. Furthermore, when it comes to groupdecision making, you are very likely to stand by your own opinion, even if it differs fromthat of the majority.SociabilityYou are someone who feels they are reasonably sociable. You feel as comfortable asothers in formal settings or when meeting new people. You are inclined to be slightlymore talkative and sociable than others, sometimes even enjoying being the centre ofattention. This slightly more talkative nature is coupled with a slightly greater need thanothers to spend your time with other people.EmpathyYou are likely to have a slight tendency to talk openly about your successes. In terms ofmaking decisions, you slightly prefer making decisions by yourself without wide-rangingconsultation. You are someone who tends to take an interest in others and is oftenprepared to provide support and make allowances for colleagues in times of personalcrisis.> 2 OPQ32 Candidates Report Ms Katie Herta: 21 January 2011 © SHL Group Limited 2008
